9/1

Highly progressive three-time winner last year hasn't built on reappearance following wind surgery. Down 2lb and in grade but he still needs to raise his game off this current mark.

Produced a career best when winning the Scottish Sprint Cup at Musselburgh in April but has struggled to match that form in four starts since. Gets a welcome ease in grade but probably still a touch high in the weights.

Won four in a row between May and July in a golden run of form. Has really struggled in two starts since off his new mark and up in grade. Probably will find life tough again off just 2lb lower.

Won this last year off 4lb higher but well below that level this time around. Came here with poor form last year and as an inconsistent performer, he can pop up with a big run but he's hard to be confident in.

On a winning mark and was a back to form with a close second in a strong looking contest at Windsor last time. Any rain would be a bonus and although his last three wins have come at Bath, he has to rate a leading contender.

Had been knocking on the door so disappointing he couldn't take advantage of the drop back to this winning trip at Thirsk last time. Cheekpieces immediately removed and a tongue-tie now added. Needs to bounce back in a tougher race.

Close third at York last month but disappointing since and he's been inconsistent this campaign. Remains 5lb higher than last win and likely others better handicapped at this level.

Placed in a Listed race in France on her last start as a juvenile and also fared reasonably well on her return at Sandown in April. Needs to leave two poor runs since well behind.

5/1

On a perfectly winnable mark at present and after not settling off a slow pace at Ayr, he was back to form with a fine third (winner in 2018) in the Stewards' Cup Consolation Race. Can go well again but drop in trip a concern.

Forecast

Orvar (10/3), Roundhay Park (9/2), Acclaim The Nation (5/1), Tommy G (5/1), Saaheq (7/1), Kick On Kick On (9/1), The Daley Express (12/1), War Whisper (12/1), Dancing Warrior (14/1), Laith Alareen (14/1), Excessable (14/1), Abel Handy (14/1), Dapper Man (16/1)

Verdict

Providing there's no deluge, Tommy G should be competitive in his current form and a fast run race may see him getting away with the drop in distance. Rain would definitely be a positive for the well handicapped THE DALEY EXPRESS who was only narrowly denied in a race run in a quick time last start. War Whisper would be notching up a hat-trick in this race for his stable and he could have just done with a faster pace last time, with his previous run putting him bang in contention.
